Isn't he beautiful?

We spotted this guy at the lake the other day. Mom actually got pretty close to him before he flew away. He is about the most unique bird we have seen.

We have great blue herons visit our pond! They like to snatch the fishies! Isn't it funny to see them drag their feet behind them when they fly! We always wonder why they don't tuck them up!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mom says she is ultra impressed you didn't run up on it and want to eat him!

A beautiful picture of a beautiful bird. I'm proud of you that you didn't scare it away before Mom got the picture.

It is a heron right? We have them here too.. including the world largest heron. They look too thin to be tasty.

I believe this bird is a Great Blue Heron, one of my favorites. Beautiful photo of him.

Wow, this is a really great birdie shot! I must tell my mom to look for one to take a picture for my big world!
Thanks for your nice comment. I think doggies are really nice and of course we are neighbors in TX too!

Oh No,
It's that mean Monster Bird that comes here & steals & eats Mama's koi fishies, hehehehe. We don't like those Blue Herons cause they murder our pet koi. Wish they would just go eat fish from the river instead.
(they are pretty birds thought)
